England vs Denmark 7 July 2021 Match preview and stats

England hosts Denmark at Wembley with the chance to reach a first major international final since their 1966 World Cup final victory.

Gareth Southgate comes with a draw after his English side convincingly rejected Ukraine 4-0 in the quarter-finals. Denmark, on the other hand, defeated the Czech Republic 2-1 in a close affair.

The three Lions are still not conceding a goal in the tournament, although they are facing their toughest test yet against a Danish team that has scored 11 goals so far compared to England’s eight.

England are the heavy favorites, but Kasper Hjulmand’s side has shown promise in all tournaments and will give them problems.

England

Having impressed for his country ever since his debut, Jordan Pickford is the undisputed number one England and he will be between the sticks again.

In front of him, Southgate will probably keep the four backs who played against Ukraine, although he could be tempted to return to a back-three, as he did as Germany, to match Denmark.

However, the Danes often switch to a 4-3-3 in the game, so it is unlikely.

Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips may not be the most extravagant doubles player in world football, but they have done the job together so far and Southgate will not disrupt it, even though Jordan Henderson scored his first international goal against Ukraine.

Mason Mount will again be deployed as number 10, with Raheem Sterling and Jadon Sancho on both sides. The Manchester United bottom-up did not get a chance in the group stage, but after impressing in the quarter-finals, he has a great chance to start.

Harry Kane leads the line in what is likely to be an unchanged starting XI.

Denmark

The Danes often start with back-back and wing-back as mentioned, but as they did against Wales, they switch to back-back if necessary.

Chelsea’s Andreas Christensen appears in a defensive midfield role that allows them to have far more tactical fluidity than most in the competition.

Hjulmand has settled on a system that works, and he will not disturb it.

Daniel Wass may well return to right-back, but the rest of the defense remains the same. Joakim Maehle has undoubtedly been their outstanding man throughout the tournament and England will have to see him down their left side.

Yusuf Poulsen returned from a bench from the bench against the Czechs, but with Kasper Dolberg in goal-scoring form, he will probably start as a sub.
